How do you keep it from sticking to your pans?

I did grease only and it stuck horribly. This is what I usually do with all cakes, but it didn't work. A good 1/2 inch of cake was left in the pan after turning out to cool. ( I waited 15 minutes)

I tried grease/flour method. It was a little better, but still had some sticking.

I haven't tried pan grease.....

If you make this cake, can you please share what works?

And mine seems to sink in the middle, but still tasty. Any advice there?

It is a yummy cake so I would like to get it to work for me.

I do use this cake recipe but i always put wax paper in the pan first then spray and you can flour too if you want. This mix is very moist so it does tend to stick. icon_rolleyes.gif

I use this recipe all the time without any problems. I use the Wilton Cake Release and it works like a charm. I flip them out of the pans onto cooling racks usually about 10-15 minutes after I take them out of the oven. Hope that helps!

Ahhh! I should have thought about the wax/parchment paper idea! Silly Me!

Thank you, Dimples, for the light bulb!
